BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. II 

The President appointed as committee of Finance, 
Brethren A. B. Adkins, W. C. Parker, and Elder E. A. 
Woodson. 

The report of the Board of Missions was then read. 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS. 

To tJii Baptist State Convention of North Carolina : 
STATE iilSSIONS. 

Another year of uiiprececiented success has crowned the efforts of God's people 
in the prosecution ol the State Mission work. A wave of enthusiasm went out 
from the late Convention in Warrcnton which has widened as it has swept all 
over the State ; and the work has grown so upon the hearts of the Lord's hosts 
that it isonij- necessary to maljc known the needs of the Board to insure prompt 
and ready responses from the thousands of friends all over our Zion. 

In accordance with the instructions of the last Convention, your Board went 
forward and aiDpropriated the whole amount pledged, S4,390, to the Missionaries 
direct, granting every request made, and depending upon increased contribu. 
tioDS sutHcient to meet the other expenses, such as postage, rent, &c. Upon 
reaching liome, two or three more applications were made of so much impor- 
tance to the denomination that we felt constrained to grant them. The results 
show how grandly the brethren have come to ourassistance. Nearly every one 
of the pledges made in support of the work has beeu paid, and most of them 
have been considerably overpaid, so that M'e now have about SoOO in the 
treasury. We thank God for such noble workers, and are sure that they are 
already well rewarded, for thej' realize that their "labor is not in vain in the 
Lord." 

DESTITUTIOIT. 

Much has been accomplished for the Master this year, but there is j-et much 
more to be done. The destitution in Ashe and Alleghany counties, with that 
along the Piedmont section in Surry, Stokes, Guilford, Randolph, Cabarrus, 
Mecklenburg and other counties, as well as the vast territory all along the At- 
lantic coast, from Virginia to South Carolina, and from the W. & W. R. R. to 
the ocean beach, cries aloud to us for the bread of life. All that is needed are 
men and money, with the blessings of the Almighty. Shall we have them? 



By a special arrangement, we have not had to pay any office rent this year 
This has somewhat diminished our expenses; but as the correspondence has 
increased, we have been called upon to make greater outlays in that direction. 
Our Corresponding Secretary, too, has travelled more than usual. He has at- 
tended eleven Associations and several Union Meetings, visited quitea number 
of churches, delivered 37 addresses, and collected in cash and pledges, S2I46.49 
for the objects of the Convention. And where he was unable to attend Associa- 
tions, on aocornt of his other duties, he has had representatives present to plead 
the cause of State Missions. 

SUGGESTIOITS. 

There are three matters to which we desire to call the attention of the Conven- 
tion : 



12 . MINUTES OF THE 



1. There is a pressing need for the right kind of a man to labor among the col- 
ored people of the State, as special missionary, holding institutes and giving 
general instruction. Several of our leading brethren have seen the importance 
of this measure, and brought it to the attention of j-our Board. Besides, the 
Honie Mission Board stands ready to pay one-half the salary of such a man. 
The plan is alreadj' In successful operation among the brethren in Georgia. 

2. It has also been suggested that it might be wise to appoint a missionary to 
the inmates of our State and county prisons. Some of our best brethren think 
it eminently proper and practicable. 

3. We would respectfuUj' suggest that the Conventio^i ask the churches 
throughout the State to release their pastors at least 10 days during the year to 
go out and hold meetings in destitute sections.

CONCLUSION. 

There is no nacre encouraging feature in our work than the fact that there is 
a continually increasing demand for more men, larger appropriations and more 
extensive operations; and the additional fact that tlie Baptists of tlie State are 
coming to see so much tlie importance of this department of our laLior tliat they 
are becoming more and more liberal, and seem ready to meet any reasonable 
demands made upon them for its support. God is giving us great success wher- 
ever the proper efforts have been put forth, and tlie way keeps opening up to 
more enlarged and inviting fields. Last j^ear, after granting every request that 
was made at the Convention, we thought that we liad been enabled to occupy 
all the fields that were available, and we went home happy. But we soon met 
the stern fact face to face, tliat there were six or eight more just as important 
points which needed and were asking for our aid. Vie met as many as we 
thought wise, and you have ratified our action by your solemn sealof liberalitj-. 

This year the demands are even larger, and we should thank God for it. Quite 
a number of applications have come up from new fields, and a large proportion 
of the old ones are still claiming our aitention. Shall we send them the ever- 
lasting Gospel, or shall we deny them the privilege of hearing the glad news of 
salvation ? 

FIELD NOTES. 

The increasing number of missionaries (54) render it impracticable that we 
should give more than a line from each one's field of labor. Itemized state-

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. I9 

FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

By request Ero. O. F. Gregory has furnished us with the following part of our 
report : 

The Conventional year has been marked hy an increased interest in the work 
of Foreign Missions, as evidenced both by larger contributions, and the number 
of laborers offering themselves for the work. 

The number of missionaries now employed by the Foreign Mission Board of 
the Southern Baptist Convention is 8S, who have 30 native assistants laboring 
with them, making a total of 68. The members of native churches number 1,032. 
Pupils in the schools, 564. Baptisms reported last year, 124. 

CHINA.— The station at Shanghai, under the superintendence of Dr. M. T. 
Yates and wife, has regular worship maintained in five places, two in Shanghai, 
one five miles from the city, and the others at Kwin San (Rev. See T'ay San^ 
pastor,) andSoo-Chow, (Teung Tsooug Oh, supply.) In Shanghai the mission 
has five services a week-congregations on Sunday vary from 50 to loO. The 
church numbers 110, and contributed for mission work .?216.8t. When the bap- 
tized believers of North Carolina equal this proportion of giving, there will be no 
lack of funds for mission work at home and abroad. Bro. W. S. ^Yalker is 
beginning to preach in the Chinese language. Rev. VV. J. Hunnex and wife 
have been added to this mission and are stationed at Ching-Kiang. a city of 
150,000 inhabitants. Miss Ruth McCown is now preparing in Philadelphia to 
join Dr. Yates, as a medical missionary. Three other native assistants besides 
those named are also laboring under Dr. Yates' direction. Dr. Yates has pub. 
lished his translations of Mark and Luke, so that his people now have all the 
Gospels, the Acts, and Romans in their vernacular. He has translated Gala- 
tians, and is working on Corinthians. 

At Tung Chow, are stationed Dr. T. P. Crawford and wife, Mrs. S. J. Holmes, 
Miss Lottie Moon (who has a school of 25 girls, and has besides visited 227 vil- 
lages,) and Bro. N. W. Halcomb, and C. W. Pruitt and wife, (the latter, formerly 
a' missionary of the Presbyterian Board, has recently been baptized). Native 
membership, 108; baptisms. 13. Miss Mattie Roberts has just sailed for China to 
join this station. 

At CAJTTON are Dr. R. H. Graves and wife, Miss LulaWhilden, Ero. E. Z. 
Simmons and v/ife, and Miss Sallie Stein, with 11 native assistants. Miss Emma 
Young is ready to sail to this mission, but is detained on account of the im- 
pending war with France. Preaching is maintained at Szne and Ng Chaw- 
Our missionaries have been stoned and persecuted at the latter place. Three of 
the ablest native assistants have died during the past year. Six schools, with 
an average attendance of 125, two Bible classes for women, and one for native 
assistants are kept up. Nine out-stations have the Gospel preached to them. 

AFRICA.— Our mission work here is located in Yomba; and the stations and 
missionaries are as follows: Lagos, W. J. David and wife; Abbeokuta, P. A. 
Eubank and wife; Ogbojio.shaw', M. L. Stone, native pastor; Gaun, S. L. 
Milton, native evangelist; Hausseo Farji, Albert Eli, native evangelist. Con- 
verts, 11; pupils, 194; church members, 100; contributions, S179.02. 

ITALY.— The following are the stations and preachers: Rome, Geo. B. Tay- 
lor, Mrs. Taylor, J. H. Eager and Mrs. Eager; Torre Pellice, Signor Cocorda;

BRAZIL.— W. B. Bagley and Z. C. Taylor and their wives occupy Santa Bar- 
bara and Bahia; they report five baptisms; church membership, 50;. 



20 MINUTES OF THE 



MEXICO.— Our missions a"e lo:;ated ia the Stale of Coalmila. At Progkesso, 
are W.M. Flournoy and wife; at Saltillo, W. D. Powell and wife, and Miss 
Annie May berry. Native assistants Juez Castillo, Profirio Rodsquez and 
Cheneta Rentena. The work has been woudefuUy prosperous ever since the es- 
tablishment of the mission. 

"The Mexican Government has offered to eive to theBaptistsof America land 
valued at •Jl'iO.OOO, provided they will establish a ?40,000 school at fSaltillo, and 
four other Fligh Hcliools at otlier important points. This looks well, but Bap- 
tists have not liiced the plan of acceptinsr cifis fromStates or Governments liere- 
tofore. The Board in Richmond, Va., accepted this gift with mucli enthusiasm, 
and the churches in Richmond promptly subscribed S2,00a for the object." 

THE COST OF THE WORK. 

The cost of the work for the past year Was $56,801.71. For this year the Board 
ask =100,000, and the quota for North Carolina is SS.OOO. The Vice President of 
the Board has, either in person or through proxj^, visited nearly all the Associa- 
tions, and feels hopeful that, although this amount is nearly twice as much as 
we gave last year, yet our apportionm.ent maybe met. Tbere will be no diffl- 
culiy in doing so, if every pastor will see that a collection is taken in each of his 
churches before April 1st, next, and urges every member to give as God has pros- 
pered him. 

WOMAN'S WORK. 

About the 1st of August the Central Committee of Women's Mission Societies 
in North Carolina was located in CbarloUe, with Mrs. O. F. Gregory as Presi- 
dent, Mrs. A. B. Todd as Corresponding Secretary, and Mrs. W. V. Williams as 
Treasurer. They report as received up to Oct. lOth, 850.16. The Pastors are earn- 
estly urged to organize the women of their churches, and to give them encour- 
agement in this laudable endeavor. 

MONEY AXD MEN. 

Money and men are needed by our Foreign Mission Board, and when our 
churches are awakened by the Holy Spirit, they will realize the obligation rest 
Ing upon them to give the gospel to the heathen. Oh for the Spirit of Christ 
which is the spirit of missions to abide within each one of us. 

CONTRIBUTIONS. 

The contributions sent up by thechurches of North Carolina to the Treasurer 
for Foreign Mission.s have been SJ,011.62: besides this there was sent direct to 
Dr. Tupper S^lOCOe, making in all S1,537.9S. 

O. F. GREGORY, 
Vice-President Foreign Mission Board for Xorth Carolina. 

HOME. MISSIONS. 

This is a department of our labor that is of vital importance. What the State 
Mission Board is to North Carolina, the Home Mission Board is to the Southern 
States, and we cannot over-estimate its value as a factor in Christianizing the 
inhabitants of our "Southern sunny clime." Thousands of immigrants are 
pouring in among us every year from almost every nation under heaven. These 
are bringing with them the idol-wor.ship of China, the ignorance and supersti- 
tion of Italy and Ireland, with the thraldom of Popery and the bondage of 
Catliolicism, the " free-thinking" and infidelity of Germany, and the atheism of 
France. \Vhat these influences will have to clo with the morals and religion Of 
this country depends much upon what we do to bring tiiese people "ton 
knowledge ol the truth as it is in Jesu.s." And the only cllactaal bulwark agains; 
such a tide is Christianity. 

Who will constitute the h^gislatoi's and national representatives from t'.ie 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 21 



Western. Slates and Territories twenty-five years from to-day? What classes of 
people are filling them at sueli an enormous rate? This will answer the ques" 
tion, and unless something is done to chanse their hearts, we shall be deluged 
in a sea of infidelity and idolatry, as black as the pall that veils the Sun of 
Righteousness from the shores of many parts of the old world. 

This Home Mission Board has had under its employ ninety-five persons, who 
during the past year, have done a grand work in many important places in the 
South and West. One of these missions is among the Chinese in California* 
And God has shown His willingness to bless the efforts so faithfully put forth 
there. And the Board is casting an anxious look over into New Mexico and 
Arizona, and longing for the means and men to send the Gospel among this 
rapidly growing people. 

And then the important and increasing work among the Indians, for which 
our sainted Brother Dodson used to plead so earnestly, and for which he spend 
his time, his means and his life, is still claiming the attention of the Home 
Board. 

Besides these, this Board has earnest, devoted men laborins in Texas, Arkan- 
sas, Louisiana, including the promising missions in Xew Orleans, Tennessee 
and Florida, and it is necessary that the work at these points be vigorously pros- 
ecuted. There is also a movement on foot to send a missionary among the 
Cherokee Indians of Western North Carolina, as well as into some other parts 
of our mountain country. 

THE COLOKED PEOPLE. 

" The Board greatly desires to extend its missions among the colored people of 
the South. Among this class of people in Georgia Dr. Mcintosh is laboring 
with ['ratifying success as Theological lustrucior. At some central point he 
gatheTs Icgether, from a circuit of some twenty or thirty miles, the preachers 
and Ipiu'.iusr men of the churches. These he caretuUy instructs in the important 
doctrines o1r the Gospel, churcli order and discipline. If our means would per- 
mit we could not do l<'r this needy race among us a better work than to employ 
a gooil man for a similar purpose in every State in the South." 

CHITRCH BUILDING DEPARTMENT. 

".\ new department of missionary work has been organized by our Home 
Mission Board, namely: 'The Church Building Department.' It is new to the 
Baptists ot the South, but it is not an exjieriment by any means. 

Oilier denominations and our Baptist brethren of the North have been prose- 
cuting this work for years with eminent success. The experience of all those 
who are engaged in'it has demonstrated its practicability. The result of its 
operations prove its great value. The support wliich it receives shows that it is 
in accord with the true Christian heart. The project addresses itself with great 
force to the mind and con.science of every follower of Jesus. 

* * :5 * * * * * * * ^ 

This new department of our work h;is already received the full endorsement" 
of our religious nress and of leading brethren throughout the South, and we are 
oreanizing the most eflicierjt plans lor its prcsecution. Kev. G. A. Nunnally, of 
Rome, Oa., has been elected Secretary for the States east of the Mississippi river. 
A brother, who has not vet signified his acceptance, has been elected for the 
States west ol the Mississ'ippi. The Board hopes tobeableto makeagood report 
of this department to the next Convention. For the most efficient prosecution 
of this work an endowment of not less than SlUO.OOo is needed. This the Board 
hopes ultimately to secure." 

We desire to mention the arduous labors performed and the self-sacrificing 
interest manifested this year by Bro. O. F. Gregory, of Charlotte, and Bro. A. G. 
McManaway, of Louisburg, the former Vice-President of the Foreign Mission 
Board, and the latter Vice-President of the Home Mission Board of the Southern 
Baptist Convention, for North Carolina, who have visited many of the Associa- 
tions in person in behalf of their respective Boards, and where they could 
not be present, they have generally been represented by proxy. They havedone 
much to inform our people and advance the cause of missions among us, and all 
vAVioiU any remuneration.

22 MINUTES OF THE 

The report of the Sunday School Board was then read 
as follows : 

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD. 

To the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina: 

We are thankful to God for the success which has been achieved in this de- 
partment of our labor this year. No more pleasing results Iiave ever greeted us 
than we have to record now. An earnest enthusiasm and hearty zeal have 
characterized the laborers and their efforts and the hand of our '"bountiful 
Father" has ae;ain shown His willingness to add His blessings. We are sorry 
that every Baptist in the State Is not fully engaged in the work. If we could 
marshal all our hosts against the powers of sin, a victory would crown us which 
would fill us with astonishment. 

This year tells us of fifty-four neiv Sunday Schools which have been organized 
in various parts of the State, many of them at the stations occupied by the mis- 
sionaries of the Convention. This is very encouraging, for we know that wher- 
ever a good Sunday School is successfully carried on for any considerable length 
of time, a church is almost sure to spring up. God is always pleased to honor 
His Word, whether proclaimed from the pulpit, or by the weak, faltering lay- 
preacher, who gathers a class around him on Sunday morning and lays before 
them the good news of salvation, the story of Jesus' love. 

OTTR SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION. 

At our annual Sunday School gathering, held this year at Shelby, N. C, a 
larger number of representatives was present than at any of our previous meet- 
ings. Interesting and able discussions were had upon quite a number of topics 
relating to our work, and all seemed happy a;d went away profited. Much 
interest was added to the occasion by the sweet, spiritual music ooniributcd by 
Bro. Fish, of Nashville, Tenn., who Avas present by special invitatio-j, and by 
the presence and aid of some other brethren from a distance. Arrangements 
for holding the next meeting were left to the new Board to be appointed by this 
body. Let us insist that the matter is not overlooked. 

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL SUPPLY STORE. 

This comparatively new enterprise, inaugurated two years ago, has grown 
very considerably, and so great was the labor in connection with it, that it was 
neeessai'y to call in some additional aid. This was happily secured in the per- 
son of Bro. James W. Denmark, who rendered very valuable service for eight 
months, and at a cost to us of only §10(). 

The year's work was begun with a capital stock of only $309.25, not including 
the S9;).38 in outstanding claims, much of which has not yet been collected. This 
small amount has been used again and again, until, with the contributions 
which have since come in, we now have in stock the follov.'ing :

24 MINUTES OF THE 

KETROSPECT, 

In November, 1S76, the Sunday School Board was carried to Raleigh. At tliat 
time there was an old debt hanging over it amounting to 52S0.45, due the 
former missionary. At the first meeting of the new Board, after permanent 
organization, thebrethren decided that no effective worli could be accomplished 
until this indebtedness was paid and something put into the treasur.v. Conse- 
quently subscriptions were immediately taken, and froin the ten members pres- 
ent Sl.OSto.to was subscribed. There was also an old claim from the American 
Baptist Publication Society, amounting to S'2.50.78, which was settled; iu all 
$331.23. With the debts all paid and money iu the treasury, a new impetus was 
given the worli; an office was rented and a man employed to spend about one- 
half his time in the office, attending to the business of the Board. 

A vigorous correspondence was immediately begun with the leading Sunday 
School workers all over the State, and an enterprise was set on foot to organize 
a Missionary Society in every Baptist Sundaj- School in North Carolina. This 
resulted in what is known as the "Little Leader" missionary society movement. 
This plan operated successfully in many Schools for three or four years, and is 
now used by several. Since that time other plans have been instituted which, 
with this, have assisted Schools in raising several thousand dollars for the pros- 
ecution of the Sunday School work. This, with the present encouraging report 
from the Supply Store, will show something of what has been done in these six 
years. 

N. B. BROUGHTON, President.

E. Taylor read the report of the Board of Education, as 
follows : 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

During the last year forty young ministers have received assistance from the 
Board. Thirty-four of these have received instruction at Wake Forest College, 
four at the Louisville Seminary, and two at Wakefield Academy. 

The Board is directed by the gth Article of the Constitution to assist "prom- 
ising and indigent young ministers" "so far as it is able." The greatest care is 
taken to afford aid to none but the "promising and indigent." But the decision 
of the question is, in some cases, a delicate and difficult task. The Board cor- 
dially and earnestly solicits information and advice from all who may be in 
position to impart facts or opinions which may affect its decisions. Candid and 
intelligent criticism of its work will be gratefully received by the Board. 

The churches have thus far enabled the Board to do all the work which it has 
deemed prudent to undertake. It is, practically, out of debt. But the eye of a 
prophet is not needed to see that the work of this Board will steadily and rapidly 
enlarge. The causes are already in existence which will produce this result. 
But it is also believed that the beneficence of the churches will l)e commensurate 
with the demands of the future. 

With gratitude to God for what He has enabled it to accomplish, and with a 
cheerful outlook into the future, the Board of Education submits the above 
report, and closes the 52nd year of its work. 
In behalf of the Board.

BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 3 1 

On the motion to adopt the report, remarks were made 
by Prof. TAi'LOR hi explaining the work of the Board; by 
Dr. T. G, Jones, of Norfolk, Va., in behalf of education, 
and by Elder C. L. Powell, showing the importance of 
training the body as well as the mind and heart. 

The report of the Board of Education was then adopted. 

The Endowment of Wake Forest College was then 
taken up. 

Prof. C. E. Taylor addressed the body. One year ago 
he consented to undertake the raising of the balance needed 
to m^ake the Endowment Fund one hundred thousand dol- 
lars ($100,000). The work was not done, but we are in sight 
of the end. If $3,000 should be raised here, he felt sure of 
the remainder. 

Elder R. T. Vann addressed the Convention in behalf 
of the College, eloquently, tenderly and grandly. 

Elder C. DURHAM made the statement that the Endow- 
ment Fund was invested in only first mortgages ; that no 
member of the Faculty or of the Trustees could borrow 
any of it. The object was to make the investments as 
secure as it is possible. That not one dollar of it had been 
lost since the war, and if careful guarding it would save it, 
not one dollar of it would ever be lost. 

Rev. Dr. Skinner said he thought it was time for us to 
commence the work of raising the needed amount. 

The following amounts of cash and pledges were then 
taken : 

Rev. Dr. Skinner, for himself and church $1,000 00

The Convention re-assembled at 7:30 p. m., and was, called', 
to order by the President. 

After singing " Nearer, my God, to Thee," Rev. Dr. JAS.. 

B. Taylor led in prayer. 

The special order for the evening was the^ co^nsideration- 
of the subject of Home Missions of the Southern Baptist 
Convention. 

Rev. Dr. T. H. Pritchard addressed the body in behalf 
of the general work in sen-ding^ the Gospel to destitute places,, 
and in aiding weak churches in the rapid growing cities of 
the South. 

Rev, Dr. G. A. Nunnally next spoke to us, representing 
the Building Department of the Home Mission Board, and 
pleading in earnest, eloquent language for aid in giving the 
Gospel to the perishing thousands of our own Southern land.

Elder A. D. COHEN read 4th chapter 1st Corinthians and 
•offered jprayer. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 



35 



Journal of yesterday read, corrected and approved. 

Elder J. F. TUTTLE and Elder W. D. Pritchard, of the 
Portsmouth (Va.) Association, were recognized and wel- 
comed by the President. 

The special order for this hour being that part of the 
report of the Board of Missions referring to State Missions, 
it was taken up. 

On the motion to adopt the report, Bro. John E. Ray, 
Corresponding Secretary, addressed the body. Six years 
ago, he said, the Board had under their appointment 9 mis-, 
sionaries ; two years after, 18; for the past year '54. It had 
been the policy of the Board during these years not to 
report any debt to this Convention. He called attention 
to the statistics as presented in the report of the Board. 

Elder HuFHAM spoke to us. He said there is a want of 
co-operation on the part of some of our bodies for fear that 
the special work they had on hand would not be properly 
appreciated, whereas the Board always did its work in con- 
formity to the wishes of the Associations, Union Meetings 
and churches, if that could be ascertained. He reviewed the 
work. Nothing was so hard to kill as a Baptist church. He 
had travelled up and down North Carolina, but had yet to 
see the first dead Baptist church. As we plant these churches 
we are doing a work that is to last as long as time lasts. In 
tears we listened as he told us of the great destitution open- 
ing up to us and of the demands that the love of Jesus 
makes upon us. 

Bro. Ray called the list of the Associations and received 
the following pledges :

Bro. Ray thanked the Convention for the Hberality dis- 
played, and said these pledges could be paid at any time 
before the first day of next November. 

" All hail the power of Jesus' name,'''' 

was sung, and Elder C. Durham led in prayer. 

The. report on State Missions was then adopted. 

The committee appointed to take into consideration the 
suggestions in the report of the Board of Missions, reported 
as follows : 

The settlement af the questions submitted in the report of the Soard of Mis- 
sions under the head of " suggestions," is the legitimate work of the Board and 
not this Convention, and is, therefore, respectfully referred to the Board. 

T. H. pritchard, 

J. D. HUFHAM, 
C. DURHAM. 

Elder Hufham, for the committee on Obituaries, called 
attention to the death during the past year of Elder EliaS 
DoDSON,Eld.WxM. Hill Jordan, and Rev. Dr.W. T, Brooks, 
and said the committee were unable to secure the data 
needed to write a suitable memorial of these brethren, and 
recommended, therefore, that the duty be assigned to some 
brother or brethren who should perform the task and place 
the same in proper form for the minutes of the Convention. 

Rev. Dr. Jas. B, Taylor told us of the last hours and 
death of Elder DODSON, and of the monument erected to- 
his memory in the cemetery in Wilmington, N. C. 

Elder Reuben Jones said Virginia would join us in 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 



37 



honoring the memory of these brethren. They were gone 
but not dead. They Hve in the lives and deeds of others. 

Dr. Pritchard referred to Elder Wm. HiLL JORDAN. 

On motion of Elder T. HARRISON, Dr. Hufham was ap- 
pointed to write the memorials, and empowered to call to 
his aid two other brethren. 

The hour for the special order having arrived, Rev. Dr. 
C. C. Bitting addressed the Convention in behalf of the 
Bible Department of the American Baptist Publication So- 
ciety. 

He said, though practically living in Philadelphia, his 
church membership was in Baltimore with the people of 
v/hich he was the former pastor, and he expected to remain 
a member of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Bible 
is the soul of all our work for Christ. If we are to have a 
Gospel fruitage, we must sow the word just as it is. If the 
Bible only was between us and other denominations, it 
would not be long before the prayer of our Saviour, that we 
all might be one, would be realized. Eloquently he ap- 
pealed for the spread of the Scriptures. He asked that the 
brethren tell their people at home of this Bible work, and 
urge them to send a contribution for it. 

Elder HUFHAM moved that we heartily approve of the 
Bible work of the American Baptist Publication Society, 
and pledge ourselves to co-operate in the same. 

The motion v/as adopted. 

Bro. Jno. E. Ray announced following new life members : 



Rev. G. P. Bostick Shelby.

Friday Night. 

Convention re-assembled at 7:30 p. m., and was called to 
order by the President. 

After singing, Rev. Dr. Skinner led in prayer. 

The special order, on motion, was suspended for fiv^e 
minutes. 

Bro. P. A. Dunn, from the committee to nominate the 
Sunday School Board, reported the following: 

J. S. Allen, T. H. Briggs, Jr., N. B. Broughton, J. M. Broughton, J. C.

Sermon, Elder C. A. Jenkens, of Newbern ; alternate, 
Elder J. M. McMAN.\^VAY, of Wilson. 

The report was adopted. 

The special order was called, being so much of the report 
of the Board of Missions as relates to Foreign Missions. 

On the motion to adopt the same. 

Elder O. F. GREGORY called our attention to the broad 
field before us, and was followed by Elder E. F. Baldwin, 
who directed our notice to the Kabylese, a nation of ten 
millions or more living in the mountains of Algeria, on the 
northern coast of Africa, where until lately the Gospel had 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 39 

never been preached, and where the first convert demanded 
at the hands of his religious teacher baptism by immersion. 
He beHeved this a call from God to the Baptists. He 
coveted for North Carolina the honor of leading off in the 
work of evangelizing this nation. 

Rev. Dr. J. L. Burrows, of Norfolk, Va., addressed the 
body in behalf of the foreign work generally. He reviewed 
the history of the work with the Baptists as one nation 
after another had come to us with outstretched hands. 

Rev. Dr. James B, Taylor spoke for a short while on 
the encouragements of the work ; and then of the startling 
fact that 856,000,000 of souls had never heard of Jesus. 

A cash collection was taken amounting to $21.73. 

The report on Foreign Missions was then adopted. 

On motion, the Convention adjourned. 



FOURTH DAY. 

Saturday Morning, Nov. 17th, 1883. 

President SCARBOROUGH called the Convention to order 
at 10:30 o'clock. 

Elder F. R. Underwood read the 84th Psalm and offered 
prayer. 

The journal of yesterday was read, corrected and approved. 

Rev. Dr. A. E. DICKINSON, one of the editors of the 
Religmis Herald, was recognized and welcomed by the Pres- 
ident. 

Dr. Pritchard, for the committee to nominate a Board 
of Education, reported the following: 

D. W. Allen, J. M. Brewer, L. Chappell, P. A. Dunn, W. B. Dunn, P. W. 
Johnson, W. C. Lankford, L. R. Mills, W. C. Powell, J. B. Powers, F. M.

Royall, W. B. Smith, W. G. Simmons, C. E. Taylor, A. R. Vann, R. T. Vann. 

The report was adopted. 



40 MINUTES OF THE 

Elder A. D. COHEN, for the committee on Periodicals, 
submitted the following report : 

REPORT ON PERIODICALS. 

There is no question of debate at this stage of the world as to the " power of 
the press" in moulding the character of any people. Recognizing this influence 
with reference to the building up of the kingdom of Jesus in North Carolina, we 
would commend the Biblical Recorder as the bcsl periodical for North Caro- 
lina Baptists. 

We are sustained in this recommendation by the well known fact, that wher- 
ever the Recorder has been introduced, every interest of the denomination has 
been best promoted ; and we feel that if the Biblical Recorder were read in 
every family, from the information thus furnished, and the education thus cheaply 
supplied, the Baptists of the State would come up to the better discharge of 
every duty. We say, then, let every minister take the Recorder and endeavor 
to introduce it into every family in his congregation as a weekly lectuTcr on the 
various duties of a well developed Christian character. 

We would recommend the Foreign Mission Journal for the best informa- 
tion and freshest news from the missionary field. We would be glad to know 
that every Sunday School had a good supply of ICind Words and the Lesson 
Papers published in connection with it. The very little ones are provided for 
by the Child's Gem. 

A. D. Cohen, 
J. A. Delke, 
Lawson Knott. 

Elder Bailey, editor of the Biblical Recorder, made 
a few remarks. He did not expect to make a speech. The 
Baptists of the State that are doing anything are taking the 
paper. If brethren desired to see more of their members at 
work, they could not secure this in any way so effectually 
as by extending the circulation of the paper. 

Elder OvERBY said if he had dune any good, or helped 
others to work in the accomplishment of good, it had been 
due to the Biblical Recorder more than anything else. 

Dr. C. C. Bitting urged the brethren to preserve their 
papers. As the pile increases they grow more and more 
valuable. 

Prof. Taylor said there was no agency so important to 
our work in North Carolina as the Biblical RECORDER. 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 4I 

Without it, we could not keep the beneficiaries supported 
at Wake Forest ; could not have accomplished the Endow- 
ment which we are looking hopefully for. Through its col- 
umns, Bro. Rav has been enabled to bring success to the 
State Mission work ; by its aid, we keep up with all our 
finances. If the RECORDER had 10,000 subscribers, we 
should see all our work greatly enlarged. 

Elder HUFHAM urged the pastors to look after the circu- 
lation of the Recorder among the members of their 
churches. 

Elders C. L. Powell, T. A. Reid, Dr. Pritchard, Dr. 
Skinner followed. 

Dr. NUNNALLY referred to some of the perplexities of an 
editor. He had tried farming, merchandising, running a saw 
mill, and a newspaper, and he had never found anything in 
which he could sink money faster than with a paper. The 
editor needs our sympathy and he begged tor kind and char- 
itable feeling toward Bro. Bailey. 

Dr. Burrows said some persons objected to the advertise- 
ments, whereas, in truth, it was the advertisements that sup- 
ported the paper, and not the subscription list. 

Elder HUFHAM read a letter from Elder Thos. Carrick, 
pastor of the church at Greenville, giving the progress of 
the work in erecting the Memorial Church at that place. 

Elder HUFHAM moved that we reaffirm the resolutions 
adopted at our last session, as follows : 

Whereas, We have heard with pleasure that our brethren in Greenville con- 
template building a house of worship to commemorate the organization of this 
body in that town more than fifty years ago ; therefore, 

Resolved, That we do approve the purpose of our brethren in Greenville. 

Resolved, That we do commend to the liberality of our brethren in the State 
this effort of the church in Greenville. 

Elder HUFHAM addressed the Convention in behalf of 
aid in the erection of the church at Greenville. 
The motion to adopt the resolutions was carried. 



42 MINUTES OF THE " 

The committee on Religious Exercises made the follow- 
ing announcement of appointments for to-morrow (Sunday):

Committee. 

The report was adopted. 

Elder W. R. Gwaltney offered the following resolution,

pastor of every white Baptist church in North Carolina shall take up a collection 
in each of his churches, before the end of the year, for the immediate completion 
of the first hundred thousand dollars of the endowment of Wake Forest College.

Night Session. 

In accordance with resolution passed by the Convention 
during its session, Bro. N. B. BJ30UGHT0N announced the 
object of this meeting — '•' Mass Meeting in behalf Sunday 
School Work." Sunday School choir sung " Look ever Up- 
ward." Prayer by Rev. A. D. HUNTER. 

Rev. Dr. Bitting, of Philadelphia, was introduced as the 
first speaker, who addressed the meeting eloquently and 
pathetically, and was followed in short and spirited speeches 
by Prof. RoVALLof Wake Forest College, Rev. T. W. Babb, 
Rev. S. H. Thompson, Dr. Thos. E. Skinner, Bro. N. B. 
Broughton and Dr. Taylor. 

The beautiful and stirring music from the Sunday School 
choir, led by Miss WOODARD, interspersed between the 
speeches, added much interest and pleasure to this very de- 
lightful meeting. 

The meeting closed by singing " Beulah Land." Bene- 
diction by Rev. T. A. Reid. 



FIFTH DAY. 

Monday, Nov. 19th, 1883. 

By arrangement of the committee on Religious Exercises, 
a Prayer and Praise Meeting was held this morning, begin- 
ning at ten o'clock, conducted by Rev. Dr. Pritchard, 
reading Matthew 17th chapter, ist to 14th verse. 

Dr. Pritchard said he had been connected with this 
Convention since 1849, when it met in Oxford, and he felt 
that this session had been the most pleasant and harmonious 
of all that he had attended. He called attention to the 
statistics as presented to this body. The aggregate of all 
the money contributed to the objects of the Convention 
including Endowment of Wake Forest College, during the 
past year was $106,747.53. 



46 MINUTES OF THE 

Bro. Ray said he believed the success of the past year 
had been because our people had come to look to Christ — 
having confidence in the work of the Convention they gave 
liberally and followed it up with their prayers. He said 
that it was surprising to some that there were so many va- 
cant pastorates ; to him it was easily understood — the organ- 
ization of new churches demanded pastors and there had 
been thirty-two last year. 

Dr. Skinner said the spirit of organization in all our 
churches was a matter of thankfulness ; to this was due our 
success. He did'nt believe any heretic could come into 
North Carolina and disturb to much extent the harmony of 
our denomination. 

Dr. Taylor said this Convention had been sweet and 
heavenly. He had never experienced more joy and peace 
than during the past few days. When the Apostles went 
down from the Mount of Transfiguration, it was to meet 
toil, labor and suffering — but Jesus went with them — and so 
he prayed Jesus might go with us. 

Elder E. F. Baldwin said he felt that the transfiguration 
scene was very much like these scenes. Jesus was a man, 
subject to discouragements, and the Father took him up on 
the Mount to encourage his heart. So we, too, have been 
permitted to come together on the Mount, and our hearts 
have been lifted up and encouraged. 

Elder Jas. S. Purefov said he had been connected with 
this Convention since 1831, the first year after its organiza- 
tion. Since that time, great changes had been wrought. 
He attributed our success to the fact of our unity. 

Prof. ROYALL prayed. 

Dr. Bitting said it had been a great privilege and a spir- 
itual joy to be at this session of the Convention. The great 
moving impulse apparent was Jesus ! He believed the way 
to prosperity was in standing for God, for Christ, for the 
Holy Spirit, for truth. 

Dr. HUFIIAM said with the exception of Elder PUREFOY 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 47 

he had been with this body longer than any other member. 
For years we had been struggling towards each other and 
at last had come together. Our success was due to the self- 
sacrificing labors of the brethren whose hearts touched with 
love for Christ had been willing to give all, that the cause of 
Jesus might be advanced. 

Prof. ROYALL said our unifying power was the word of 
God. To that word he was indebted for all of the good- 
ness and mercy of God as revealed to him. He thanked 
God for the promises in the Bible. It is not God is a refuge, 
but God is our Refuge. He thanked Him for the encourage- 
ment of His word to him as a sinner. 

Dr. Pritchard alluded to the Scripture lesson read, and 
the important truths taught us, and from which we are led 
to believe that we shall know each other in heaven. He 
called to mind the labors and toils of Meredith, Wait, 
Walters, Wingate and others. 

Bro. Hunter asked that the students at the Seminary in 
Louisville, Kentucky, be remembered in the prayers of the 
brethren. 

President Scarborough made closing remarks. There 
had not been a sharp word said, not a single disagreement — 
hot even a discussion. He returned thanks for the kindness 
and patience exhibited to him. 

On motion, the Convention adjourned to meet in Raleigh. 
" Precious Name" was sung, the hand of parting taken and 
we separated.

REPORT ON OBITUARIES. 



ELIAS DODSON 

Was horn in Virginia, October 27th, 1807, His youth and early manhood 
were spent on his father's farm, where he received the physical training and 
development which bore him with uninterrupted good health through fifty years 
of arduous and incessant toil. He also received such mental training as the 
country schools of that day could furnish. In 1S32 he was converted to God 
under tlie preaching of John Kerr, and was baptized by William Blair. In 1S35, 
having decided that it was his duty to preach the Gospel, he entered the Baptist 
Seminary, now Richmond College, and after completing the course of study 
went to William and Mary College, from which institution he was graduated in 
1S3S. The same year, at Grace Street church, Richmond, he was ordained to 
the full work of the ministry. For a few years he was engaged as a missionary 
of the General Association of Virginia, preaching mostly in the Roanoke Asso- 
ciation, which was then pervaded to a considerable extent by the anti-missionary 
spirit. He and Elder J. J. James prepared the body for the change, effected a 
few years later by the tact and courage of John L. Prichard, by which it was 
brought into hearty co-operation with the other Associations of the State in 
building up the Redeemer's kingdom among men. 

In 1S44 he accepted an appointment as missionary of the Baptist State Con- 
vention for the Beulah Association, In this work he was greatly useful. In one 
county where there was no Baptist church, he baptized a small company of 
believers and gathered them into a church. A few years ago thirteen churches 
had sprung from that parent stem and the work of multiplication was still going 
on. Under his ministry the gifted and fascinating woman who afterwards mar- 
ried Stephen A. Douglass was converted and baptized. As a memorial of her 
the great statesman gave to the Baptists the property out of which has come the 
University at Chicago. 

He greatly helped to quell the spirit of Antinomianism which still lingered, 
arrogant and aggressive, in some parts of the Association, and ^o bring the 
.churches up to the high standard of liberality and efficiency which they have since 
maintained. It was he who first prominently and persistently brought before 
the Baptists of the State the importance of occupying the towns and growing 
villages. Not only by his pleadings and contributions, but also with the labor 
of his own hands, he helped' to secure the first house of worship owned by the 
Baptists of Hillsboro. For a considerable time his plea for the towns seemed 
almost unheeded, but it bore fruit abundantly during the last eighteen years of 
his life. 

Retiring from his position as missionary, he accepted the agency of the Home 
Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention for North Carolina. With 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 49 

the exception of a few years spent in Tennessee he gave his time and strength 
to this work, continuing in it as long as he was able to travel. He labored on 
for several months with the consciousness that a fatal disease was on him and 
rapidly running its course. In Wilmington, towards the close of November, 
1882, in the house of Mr. Oldham, the son of an old and cherished friend, he 
lay down to await the summons from on High. His work was done. On the 
6th of December he pissed from the tender ministrations of brethren who loved 
him to the "general assembly and church of the first-born" in heaven. 

He was never married. He cared for a widowed sister and her children with 
the wisdom and tenderness of a father ; but the love of Christ filled his whole 
heart as the preaching and the service of Christ filled up his whole life. 

A memorial stone, erected by his brethren in different parts of the State, 
marks the spot where all that was mortal of him lies buried ; faint emblem of 
their love for him while living, of their sorrow for him now gone from them 
forever. It was meet that he and the heroic Prichard should lie near each other 
in their last sleep, since in the earlier years of their ministry they were fellow- 
soldiers, victors too, on the same field of glorj'. 

As a man his leading characteristic was his genuineness. Through and through 
he was real ; utterly devoid of sham and pretence. His most striking mental 
trait was strong common-sense. This, joined to a firm reliance on the utter- 
ances of his own judgment, an industry that never flagged or intermitted, a store 
of accurate knowledge which reading and observation were constantly increasing, 
a love of order which pervaded and ruled his life, a prodigious memory improved 
by education, a singleness of purpose which nothing could divert, a large ac- 
quaintance with men and knowledge of men, and an integrity which was above 
the reach of corrupting influences, would have made him successful in any busi- 
ness or profession. 

Such men are usually considered eccentric, and those who knew him will long 
continue to tell smilingly, lovingly, of Brother Dodson's peculiarities. He was 
economical in the use of words ; fond of condensing his thoughts into proverbs 
and short, pithy sentences. Few persons ever heard him without carrying away 
as a memorial of him some of these sayings. The tone of his conversation was 
cheerful but dignified ; the matter entertaining and instructive. One of the 
most eminent public men of the State was wont to say that he enjoyed Brother 
Dodson's visi^ because he always learned something from them that was worth 
knowing. No man of his day will be so long or so often quoted by his brethren. 

His whole bearing was that of a man who had seen the Lord ; who belonged 
to the Lord, lived with the Lord. Prayer was to him an unfailing source of 
strength and joy. The Bible was to him the voice of God. He studied it 
reverently, lovingly, prayerfully, constantly. More than once in the homes 
where he was sojourriing, when there was insufficient light at the home for family 
worship, he repeated a chapter from memory and then led in prayer. 

In the earlier years of his ministry he was very successful as an evangelist. 
To a firm grasp and clear presentation of the doctrines of grace were added an 
earnestness and unction that at times made him irresistible. During the last 

4 



50 MINUTES OF THE 

twenty-five years of his life his preaching was largely on the duty of believers to 
consecrate themselves and their possessions to the Lord. This duty he enforced 
by arguments from the Scriptures and by illustrations drawn from every source. 
But the most effective part of his preaching, as it must be in the case of any man, 
was that which his own daily life furnished. His invariable rule was to accept 
only so much salary as sufficed to meet his ordinary wants. It was a favorite 
saying of his : " Our imaginary wants are many ; our real wants are few." Of 
imaginary wants he had none ; even his real wants he studied to make as few as 
possible, out of his love for God and humanity. He was many-sided in his 
sympathies. Every form of suffering touched him. Every method of doing 
good attracted him. Every part and form of the Lord's work engaged his heart, 
his prayers and his contributions. He entered the ministry in a time of heated 
theological discussion. As was natural to him he investigated these subjects 
thoroughly, and on all the lines he had sharply defined views which he was 
always ready to present and maintain. 

In concluding this sketch we quote from Dr. ' Robert Ryland, for many years 
President of Richmond College ; "I have often said — and I now say, delibe- 
rately, without the exaggerating effect that the death of a friend always produces 
on our minds — that Ellas Dodson was (he best man I ever knew. My disposi- 
tion leads me, perhaps too much, to look closely into the character of men of 
reputed goodness — men held up as models of excellence. And I have often 
grieved to see in them qualities and deeds that required to be covered with the 
mantle of charity and silence. Examples even now rise up to my memory, that 
I would not mention for a bag of gold. But after long acquaintance and close 
inspection, I am constrained to say that / have never perceived a fault in 
Dodson ! The omniscient and infinitely pure Eye did doubtless see defects in 
him, but they escaped my dull vision. His name is indelibly associated in my 
mind with these inspired words — ' wise unto that which is good, and simple 
concerning evil.' Rom. i6 : 19. He was a man of good sense, of eminent 
wisdom, but it was all expended — exhausted — on ' that which is good.' When 
'evil' came up to solicit his attention and indulgence, he was 'simple' — he 
seemed not to have sense enough to say, to do, or even to think ' evil.' "

ELDER WILLIAM T. BROOKS, D. D.. 

Was born in Chatham county, N. C, December 9, 1809. He professed faith 
in Christ at Rives' Chapel in a revival meeting held in connection wilh, or fol- 
lowing immediately upon, the third session of the North Carolina Baptist State 
Convention, and was baptized into the fellowship of this church in September, 
1832, by Elder Noah Richardson. 

His education being limited, and a new sphere of responsibility and duty 
opening up now before him, the desire for a liberal education took firm hold 
upon him. He accordingly sold what property he had, and in 1834, at the age 



BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 51 

of twenty-four, entered the school at Rives' Chapel. The following year he 
began his course at what was then Wake Forest Institute, and in 1839 gradua- 
ted with the first class going out from the College with diplomas. The convic- 
tion that he was called of God to preach the gospel of Christ, no doubt intensi- 
fied the zeal he displayed in acquiring an education. His ordination took place 
the same year that he entered College. 

In 1843 he became a tutor in Wake Forest College, and subsequently a pro- 
fessor, which position he held for a number of years. After his resignation he 
was appointed a Trustee of the College, and for a long time was President of 
the Board of Trustees. 

In 1869 he was elected President of the Baptist State Convention, and con- 
tinued to serve in this capacity until failing health at length compelled him to 
forego the privilege he had always so highly prized of meeting with the breth- 
ren in their annual gatherings. 

For thirty years Dr. Brooks was pastor of Mount Vernon church, in Wake 
county. He was also pastor of other churches, two of which, the one at Hen- 
derson and the one at Forestville, he was insl^mental in organizing. 

His labors as a preacher of the Gospel were blessed to the conversion of many 
souls. His preaching was thoroughly evangelical. Man's lost condition out 
of Christ was never put in the background. Redemption by the blood of Chrst 
was never explained away as a mere figure of speech. Heaven and hell were 
to him solemn realities. He honored the Holy Spirit. He believed the word 
oi God. 

For six years he lingered on the shores of time, though apparently his work 
was done. But not so. There was fruit to be brought forth in old age under 
the pruning of the Husbandman, which was to magnify the grace of God in 
Christ Jesus our Lord, and prepare His servant for the great change awaiting 
him. '■ Behold we count them happy which endure." Not till the time comes 
does the Father take his children home. " Precious in the sight of the Lord 
is the death of His saints " — the time, the place, and the circumstances. 

Gently, as a little child, he fell asleep in Jesus January 16, 1883, at Wake 
Forest College, which for so many years had been his home, surrounded by his 
wife and the three children who survive him. 

W. B. ROYALL. 



REV. WILLIAM HILL JORDAN. 

This distinguished minister of the Gospel ended his earthly labors and entered 
into rest on Friday, October I2th, 1883, at his residence in Oxford. It was 
our privilege to know him and to be numbered among his friends for the last 
ten years. When we first saw him, he had by reason of age and infirmities, 
retired from the active duties of the ministry. He still attended the sessions 
of his Association and aided his brethren in special meetings. The most of 



52 MINUTES OF THE BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 

these years of comparative inactivity he spent in diligent study and prayerful 
meditation on the Word of God. We loved him for his stainless purity, his 
shining character as a Christian, his devout and humble piety, his unswerving 
loyalty to truth and to God, as well as for his splendid talents and attainments 
as a preacher. His pilgrimage was long, laborious and eventful. He finished 
it with honor to himself and credit to tlie denomination he represented ; and 
waited patiently at the river for the parting of the waters, looking with un- 
clouded eyes to the mountains of joy on the other .shore. 

We learn from the Baptist Encyclopedia .that '' Rev. William Hill Jordan was 
born in Bertie county, N. C, August 15th, 1803. Hi*cjiother afterwards mar- 
ried the Rev. Mr. Poindexter, and was the mother of Rev. Dr. A. M. Poin- 
dexter. To the piety and force of character of this good woman, who conse- 
crated her sons to God's service at their birth, our Southern Zion is indebted 
for two of the ablest and most eloquent ministers who have distinguished her 
annals." 

Bro. Jordan was educated at Chapel Hill, professed a hope in Christ on the 
9th of December, 1823, preach^ his first sermon on the 25th of December of 
the same year, and was baptized by Rev. Reuben Lawrence, Jan. 25th, 1824. 
It will thus be seen that Bro. Jordan was induced by his brethren to preach 
before he was baptized. This was to him a source of much sorrow, but it may 
be doubted whether it should have been, since it is said a great revival began 
from his preaching, spreading over several counties, and resulting in the con- 
version of 2,006 souls. 

Besides serving a number of churches in the country, Bro. Jordan has been 
pastor of churches in Raleigh, Wilmington, Lilesville and Wadesboro, N. C, 
Clarksville and Petersburg, Va., Norristown, Pa., and Sumpter, .S. C. 

He was for a long time Corresponding Secretary of the Baptist State Con- 
vention ; he was twice agent of Wake Forest College, giving his time and 
money for its release from financial distress, and as a trustee worked faithfully 
for its prosperity. Bro. Jordan called himself a High Churcli Baptist, and 
. spent no small part of his life in vindicating by voice and pen Baptist and Cal- 
vinistic principles.' 

He was a very eloquent speaker and seemed never at a loss for forcible and 
appropriate words. He walked close with God and talked much with Him. 
In prayer he seemed to be face to face with his Maker and to lose conscious- 
n«ss of all such matters as time, his position and surroundings. With the affec- 
tion of a child for a kind and bfenevolent father and as a devoted subject before 
his honored and loved king, he made known his wants in words of adoration, 
gratitude and confidence. He was wonderfully gifted in prayer. For more 
than fifty yea's his name has been a household word among the Baptists of 
North Carolina and his memory will be reveienced as long as those who knew 
him live.
